Many young people fail to consider the numerous options available within agriculture when choosing a college major. They often lack familiarity with the opportunities for diverse and rewarding careers that these majors provide. During this panel discussion aimed at middle and high school students, N.C. A&T students in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences will share insights about majoring in an agricultural discipline and their plans for the future.Farmers and interested members of the public are invited to sign up free of charge at the Small Farms Week registration webpage.
